It appears that your flex in /usr/local/bin is not being found. It is possible that PATH for the build environment does not contain /usr/local/bin probably in order to have a controlled build environment. Why don't you temporarily do: ln -s /usr/local/bin/flex /usr/bin/flex and see if that works. _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
